Anyone who hasn't heard this, owes it to themselves to invest the roughly half hour it takes to enjoy this fantastic early performance.

This is the show that I will take with me to my grave.

When I listen to this music, this is what I hear...

Indeed this is a classic performance, one of the very best of 1968. My personal favorite parts of the show are the stunning ending to New Potato and a dark and brooding Spanish jam.

Don't forget the Viola Lee Blues and Schoolgirl from this show on RT2.2. Also excellent.

Clementine dropping from the performance repertiore so quickly will always qualify as a major mystery in my mind. What a wonderful tune.
Especially during a time -prior to the explosion of new tunes that came later with Workingmans Dead and American Beauty- when it would seem that new material would have been very welcome.

Hi, I was actually at this concert at 14 years of age with my mother and brothers 11 and 8... That's the way the town was in1968. It was at he Eureka Municipal auditorium which is not downtown, but more in a residential part of town. It was the best, our second concert the first being Donovan at the cow palace, a life changing experience for a 14year old girl from Arcata. Would love to own the poster!

Hi LgI157, you were at this 'dance"? how cool is that! Ive been wanting to talk to somebody who was at this "dance" for years now. I live in Blue Lake and have plowed thru the old newspapers at the Eureka library trying to find a review. I did find one artical about it. I used to have a photocopy, but this is all it said:

Times Standard 1-22-68

4 EUREKANS BOOKED ON MARIJUANA

Four persons were arested by city police over the weekend on charges of possession of marijuana, two of them, a boy ans a girl, both 16, at a dance at the Eureka Municipal Auditorium Saturday night.
Police were called to the auditorium after the manager called to report a disturbance.
They aressted Donald Dingler, 19, booking him for violating city ordinance 44.08, refusing to disperse when lawfully oprdered to do so.
The managment said Dingler and four juviniles with him were refused admission to the dance because they were intoxicated and that an argument ensued.

I know a fella who knew of this Dingler dude. He told me I would not want to talk to this dude, a very unsavory sort of person now.

One of these days im going to get into the basement of the Muni and find and old dusty complete recording of that Dark Star. Wishful thinking ;)

Thanks for chiming in on this thread. Be well.

p.s. The second pic is a label i made for a beer i brewed to commemorate this show.
